Synopsis:
In the second part of this story, Superman deals with the losses of more of his friends at the hands of the Legion of Super Villains, the Kryptonite Man, and the combined Luthor-Brainiac, who have sealed off the area around the Fortress of Solitude to prevent anyone going in or out. Superman realizes who is really behind all the attacks, and uses the Phantom Zone projector to kill the one being responsible prior to his self-exposure to Gold Kryptonite and his eventual alleged death.
